Hong Kong police have rescued a woman who was allegedly abducted into a car after a money dispute and arrested six suspected triad members following a 15km chase that ended in a roadblock in the New Territories.

A preliminary investigation suggested that a money dispute over alleged drug transactions was behind the unlawful detention incident in Yuen Long on Monday night, a source familiar with the case revealed on Tuesday.

The insider said the 46-year-old woman was accused of obtaining illegal drugs worth about HK$37,000 (US$4,720) from the Wo Shing Wo triad but had failed to pay them.
